Gilbert Gruet, the founder of Gruet Winery, was born in 1931 in Bethon, France. And in 1952, along with his wife Danielle, he fulfilled his dream to make Champagne. By 1967, he started Union Vinicole de Coteaux de Bethon (a co-op in his native village). Yet, it wasn’t until 1983 when the Gruet family, traveling through the American Southwest, met a group of European winemakers growing vines near Albuquerque. In 1984, he decided to plant an experimental vineyard in New Mexico (growing exclusively Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). His children, winemaker Laurent and daughter Nathalie, then relocated to New Mexico to begin their American wine making adventure, and Gruet wines are to this day some of the most highly regarded New World sparkling wines made in the méthode champenoise.
